Screw Gutenberg (and WordPress too)

I hope i don't regret this, but i made the decision to drop WordPress in favor of ClassicPress! I don't like the direction WordPress is going and i absolutely detest their asinine decision to FORCE the 'Gutenberg' editor (AKA 'block editor') down peoples throats whether they liked it or not, and many millions don't.

ClassicPress was forked from WordPress version 4.9 i believe, at or around the time the greedy morons at WordPress decided to foist their gimmicky GutenBORG editor on everyone. Classic press is, and promises to remain, a community driven project. Development is driven in part through petitions created by users and i like the idea, both for its simplicity and the willingness of the developers to listen to users, a quality that has essentially evaporated from the WordPress community it seems.

I switched over without doing any testing and, to my surprise, most everything *seems* to be working. The issue on the horizon is going to be ClassicPress compatibility with WordPress plugins as the project diverges further away from the WordPress core and the Gutenberg garbage infects much more of WordPress. We'll see what happens, but if you notice any problems, please let me know.
